Our Little Visitor

 While we were up in Raleigh visiting family this past weekend, we picked up Scout. Scout is my niece Morgan’s puppy. We will be looking after the sweet Mr. Scout until his mommy gets better.

Some of you may already know that Morgan was recently diagnosed with stage four colon cancer at the young age of 22. To say that Morgan is a great girl is a huge understatement!  Even though she is over ten years younger than I am, I have always admired and looked up to her. Last year she graduated cum laude and started graduate school shortly after. She has an amazing group of friends and a family that loves and adores her.

Morgan’s favorite color is purple so I made a collar in her honor with the proceeds going to
We have already raised $130.00

These two are the best of friends already.


  1. Scout is a little cutie.
    Good luck to Morgan with her treatment xx

  2. These pictures are too much! They are so sweet. Your niece is in my prayers - it seems like colon cancer should be an old person cancer...

    JOYful D*Sign

  3. I love the pictures of Sophia and Scout playing it just looks like so much fun...until you get to the last picture where it doesn't look like Sophia is too happy to have Scout in her basket...like "this is where I draw the line pup!"

    What great pictures and so sweet of you to share this story. I also wish the best for Morgan my thoughts are with you all.

  4. I pray that Morgan would heal completely. My husband had the same about 8 yrs ago. As for Mr Scout...I love him! I have owned several cockers...all blonde or red. Ornery but adorable! You have your hands full for sure!

  5. Good Luck Morgan. We'll be praying for you too.
